This was possibly the best breakfast casserole I've ever tasted. In the oven it puffs up like a souffle but completely flattens within a few minutes of coming out of the oven. It was still possible to tell where the edges of the bread were so it was easy to cut into individual "sandwiches" to eat in the living room with a fork for Christmas breakfast. I used bacon cooked brown but not crisp and by morning you could easily cut it with a fork. I added about a teaspoon of Cholupa hot sauce and it was just right for us - merely a hint of heat discernible by some, none at all noticed by most. I had no green pepper so left it out but will use it or red pepper next time (maybe even something with some heat - we like spicy). Instead of Special K, I topped it with crushed Ritz crackers and I am hoping there is still one piece left in the fridge for breakfast at work tomorrow. Thank you,thank you for posting this really delightful recipe.
My family flipped over this! There was none left! Everything was sooo good. I would not change a thing. Thank you for this awesome make ahead recipe.
Your recipe was such a hit that I'm making it again this Sunday! I didn't have sharp cheddar so I used Swiss, it was wonderful! I'm going with the cheddar next. Thanks for sharing this wonderful 'make ahead' recipe!
This dish was absolutely great! We prepared 1/3 of the recipe for a taste test & it was such a hit, we are going to send it to my daughter's 5th grade class to represent Scotland in their 'Culture Feast' thanks, D. Florez
